New Cache Mass Submission Script

I enjoy hiding and submitting caches for, a modern day scavenger hunt type game using GPS devices. I also enjoy hiding large series and counts of caches and going through the step by step process in submitting a cache is a time consuming process at times. So I looked to ease that process upon myself by creating this automated script that takes a templated input file and then processes it and fills out the web form repeatedly until all items have been submitted. It has a basic swing UI to gather the basic information needed for user friendly and then uses Selenium to automate the web browser
